Muay Korat (Muay from the city of Korat) is a Muay Boran style invented in the 20th century AD by a general of the Thai army.

Muay Korat contains elements of Muay Lumpinee, Muay Chaiya, Judo and Taekwondo. It follows that the Muay Korat is not a pure Thai martial art. Muay Korat’s famous water buffalo technique comes from the column by Ajarn Ket Sriyapai (see Muay Chaiya).

Like the Krabi Krabong, Muay Korat has never been deployed in a warlike conflict.
